Green Bay Packers Release Jordy Nelson

Report Jimmy Graham expected to sign with Saints or Packers

While Nelson said publicly last season he was open to a potential pay cut to stay in Green Bay, ESPN's Rob Demovsky reported Tuesday that Nelson was actually opposed to the idea. They broke Brett Favre and Antonio Freeman's record of 58 during the 2016 season. "He has been an exemplary professional and teammate and greatly contributed to our success". The all-world quarterback's new deal will certainly make him the highest paid football player in the history of the planet Earth, but they could structure it to be cap friendly for the next few years.

This is a change for Green Bay Packers fans. Cobb was given his chance in 2015 to be the go-to guy, when Nelson missed that season, but it didn't happen.

With Nelson's release, the Packers now turn their attention to finding help on both sides of the ball. However, it's not that they can't re-sign him at a lower rate.

Minnesota lawmaker introduces bill to ban Bachelor Arie
Becca Kufrin had something to say - and she finally got to say it on Tuesday night's The Bachelor: After the Final Rose . Christensen's challenge surpassed his expectation, receiving almost 12,000 retweets by the time he signed the bill.

This is the second consecutive offseason in which Green Bay added a big-name tight end. It's the fourth time in his career that he's scored 10 or more touchdowns in a season. And dropped passes were also an issue as Graham tied for the second-most in the National Football League with seven in 2017, according to ESPN Stats & Information. Still, he hauled in a respectable (though, not outstanding) six touchdowns.

In Seattle, Graham caught 170 passes for 2,048 yards and 18 touchdowns over three seasons, but he never reached the heights of his incredible career in New Orleans as he struggled to become Russell Wilson's No. 1 option. Nelson will also surely command as much or more money than Amendola got with the Dolphins (reportedly two years for $12 million). Nelson finished 2017 with just 53 catches for 482 yards. Nelson's absence leaves Davante Adams as the Packers' number-one wideout, while Geronimo Allison stands to see a big increase in opportunity unless the Packers invest more at the position.
